Now that "Batman Begins" has refreshed the franchise, it's time to consider a sequel.
I've not hung out at any forums discussing such things, but I'm sure my own expection isn't unique.
The second film would have the Joker as the villain, possibly portrayed by Crispin Glover. I would expect the result of that to look something like this photo (that's not Crispin, but it does look like him).
The film would probably introduce Harvey Dent, since the previous DA got kacked in the first film. Toward the end, Dent would have his little "accident", setting up Two-Face for the third film.
Where the Scarecrow fits in to all this (if at all), I don't quite know. But if I don't get a Joker and a Two-Face that I'm happy with, I'll be, well, unhappy.
Nicholson and Tommy Lee Jones are fine actors, but they were miscast and misdirected in their respective roles. If the animated series can get it right, then so can the big-budget films!
